    Direct, Witty, and Insightful!!!

    I've always been a fan of D.L. Hughley and his keep-it-real comedy and commentaries. I must say that this book is most definitely aligned with D.L.'s approach to life, comedy, and politics. As I was reading this book, I could hear D.L. as if he were narrating in my head (a la his James L. Jones remark in his book). No topic is off limits for D.L. and he offers his opinions in crisp, witty, and sharp rhetoric. He talks about everything from the economy to the downfall of education in our country. He talks about politics and its impact on the black community and he does it in a way that appeals to both the scholar and the hustler. He also offers insights into his own personal life and his opinions regarding fatherhood, bullying,relationships,and even dealing with his son's autism. Just like in his stand-up performances, D.L. is able to give us a dose of reality blended well with a good belly laugh and plenty of LOLs. There are also many quotable quotes that I have highlighted and already shared with many of my friends. This book made me laugh but it also made me think. I have always felt that comedians offer the best perspectives on life, politics, and social issues and this book doesn't disappoint. Job well done, D.L.!

    highly recommended for the open minded individual

    I read this book with a very wide perspective and was delighted to see and understand Mr. Hughley's perspective on the status of our country.

    His opinions and observations are both honest,relevent, and piognant.

    This is a remarkable read by DL Hughley. he discusses American

    This is a remarkable read by DL Hughley. he discusses American politics, race relations, the judicial system, marriage and family, growing up in the ghetto, and success. Mr. Hughley's escape from the elements of his childhood environment makes one ponder the role of fate/destiny in our individual lives. You will surely walk away with an appreciation for Mr. Hughley's candid disclosure of life through his eyes. He makes you laugh and most of all, he makes you think.

    DL tells it like he sees it.

    This is a well written, liberal look on the state of things. It's his opinion but his opinion is witty and makes you think. I didn't always agree with some of the racial references but, then a gain, I'm not a black man living in America. Recommended reading.
